    2 yr visit update

    Had my 2 year visit with my ortho last week, the major curve is now at 60 degrees. He said I could have surgery if I wanted, and he壇 do it if I wanted. Decided to hold off for now, another visit in 2 years. I知 guessing in about 5 years I should seriously consider a correction, at the rate the curve is progressing I値l hit around 70 in that time frame.

    For now, I知 keeping my flexibility.

    Hope everyone is doing well!

    Are you experiencing any pain or issues with a 60* curve?

    I have some pain issue, but nothing so bad it痴 debilitating. I have started having shoulder problems which I think the rib hump is contributing but my doc said I could try TheraBands (resistance training) to strengthen my rotator cuff. So hoping that値l make my weak left rotator cuff stronger. Non dominant side... so not a big surprise the weak RC is causing problems from being excessively 鼠oose.
